Ugo Dehaes


LIMP is the third part in the Forced Labor series by choreographer Ugo Dehaes. In the first two works, Ugo looked for ways to replace his dancers with robots and himself with Artificial Intelligence. The work was a response to the increasing pressure and cuts within the arts. In LIMP, Ugo investigates how people and technology can go hand in hand and strengthen each other.

In this solo, an amputee dancer is equipped with a robotic foot prosthesis, while the choreographer is assisted by an intelligent and creative computer that will help devise the choreography.
